    Loved that there was a plug right by my pillow so I could have my phone near me while charging. The room was quite small and stuffy, but it was only a 4 person room, so that's to be expected. Beds were quite hard. Restrooms...More

    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
    this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
    visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers

    Hi Hayley. Our breakfast is £1.90 and we do have gluten-free cereal as an option. There's a car park at the Travelodge Hotel around the corner and it is £15 for 24h. Hope this helps. Your High Street Hostel team.
